  1. I did read a few years ago that molyslip didn`t do much but due to the placebo effect people thought that the gearbox felt better. changing the gearbox oil at regular intervals is probably al that`s needed. I think that it`s a feature of these cars that the gearbox is the best when it`s cold, mine is exactly the same.
  2. Apparently permanently out of stock at Amayama, 1 available on ebay but it`s collection only from Harrow.
  3. Yeah I`m aware of the differences between here and the States 😂 TBH I`m not a fan of CF mirror covers, I actually prefer the pearlescent white, I have toyed with the idea of a CF rear spoiler but I`m not sure I`d like it, it would be an expensive mistake.
  4. Yeah I`ve already looked into that, there is a complete mirror unit that has a white cover but the scratches are worse than mine. It will actually be cheaper to get one from the States and they`re more readily available, just none in white at the moment. I`ll just keep looking and hope one turns up soon.
  5. I thought about fixing it, the internal parts are easy as they`re not seen, just the top of the mirror housing thats visible. I`ve used cutting polish today and got rid of most of the scratches but there are some that are just too much, might try the rattle can 😂 Had to buy a cheap mirror glass from Hellfrauds for the MOT tomorrow. Could have been worse 12" from a total side swipe I think, I`ll bide my time with the mirror. Done as much as I can, maybe a couple more will come out but there are chips that are too far gone for cutting compound.
  6. She'll be back to full health but I'll have to wait and see what's available on eBay, chances of finding the guy is slim at best. I do have his mirror cover though 😂 there is a sticker with a vin number on it but it's too faded to read. I think I might stick it on eBay and see if I get a bite 😂
  7. Cheers John, I always thought it was only a crime to leave the scene of someone was injured. I think the likelihood of finding the guy will be slim at best and I'm sure the police won't be the slightest bit interested.
  8. Thanks to an idiot Jag driver I now need a driver's side door mirror. Going down Garrowby Hill, following two cars and just going round a left-hand bend I heard a loud bang and saw my mirror cover flying off and the glass gone. When I looked in the mirror there was a blue car pulling in between two cars going the other way, obviously just completing an overtaking manoeuvre and was still over the white lines. He never stopped and I didn't get his reg and I only know it was a Jag as I've recovered his mirror cover. At first I thought it was just the cover and glass but on closer inspection the mirror body is damaged too, I never found the glass but recovered the cover and have managed to polish out the worst marks but there are still some chips and scratches that the cutting compound can't sort out. I think the cheapest route will be to wait for a complete unit in the right colour to pop up on eBay in the States as these are considerably cheaper than over here.
  9. I get that after it has rained, it seems very dusty where I live, and it looks like there are thousands of Woodlice on it. I get a fine layer of dust after just one day so I`ve learnt to live with it.
  10. Hi Scott, welcome to the forum 👋
  11. You can`t use copies in the Zed, genuine discs unfortunately.
  12. Was that a genuine Audi satnav upgrade?
  13. I did mine last year, I got it here, be aware that it takes 3 hours and you need to leave your engine running while the discs update the system but it`s cheaper than the dealership 👍
  14. They're Nissan parts, same as mine 👍
